The Canada Transportation Agency (CTA) has determined that the new Canadian airline meets the authority’s financial requirements, bringing it closer to starting operations. The company hopes to operate its first commercial flight during the summer.
This airline will focus its offer on leisure flights operated by a fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft. In its first stage, It will provide Canadians with a network of destinations in Canada, the United States, Cuba, Jamaica, Saint Lucia, Antigua, the Bahamas and other Caribbean countries.
Through a statement, the company indicated that it had previously received approval for oversight requirements from the Canadian authorities and is now awaiting the issuance of its Air Operator Certificate (AOC) and commercial license.
“This is an important milestone for Air Canada as we approach the completion of the AOC process with Transport Canada. The CTA (Air Traffic Control) teams and Canada Jetlines are working closely and diligently to ensure that the requirements of a new airline operating in Canada are met or exceeded. Eddie Doyle said, CEO of the airline, “We are working very hard to reach the goal of the accreditation process.”
